English lit essay examples?

Hey I am in yr 13 and I have my mocks in January, I was wondering if anyone has any essay examples that will help me. I am following the PEARL structure but I feel as if my writing isn't strong enough. The papers I'm doing are Shakespeare King Lear and Duffy/Larkin, if anyone even has any tips that will be highly appreciated thank you.

Hi there - I run a YouTube channel where I share useful English Lit study videos on a weekly basis. I have videos on Lear and Duffy, as well as an essay sample walkthrough (it's on Lord of the Flies but should also help give you an idea of how to write a top grade A-Level essay), see if they help you at all?

I'll also be posting lectures on essay writing skills in the new year, so consider subscribing to not miss out on that :smile:
